LAHS football gathers to celebrate successful season

After completing its first winning season in five years, the Los Alamos High School football team gathered at Crossroads Bible Church last Friday evening to celebrate the past, and look ahead to the future.

More than 200 people filled the church to capacity, with head coach Garett Williams, saying, “This is the biggest banquet we have ever done, and it is great to see the LA football family continue to grow.”

The banquet began with a highlight film from the varsity games throughout the season, including all of the key plays from the team’s dramatic wins over Santa Fe High School and Española Valley High School.

After the 14 minute video package, Williams said, “The original version of that was more than 35 minutes long. We had so many big plays this year, and it was hard to narrow it down.”

Following the video, the team began to hand out a number of team, and All-District, awards.

The two big winners from the varsity team were Jack Stewart and Arturo Rodriguez, both of whom took home multiple awards. Stewart was awarded Academic All-District, First Team All-District as both a running back, and as a linebacker and was named the team’s offensive Most Valuable Player.

During the season, Stewart ran for nearly 900 yards and caught passes for nearly 200 more.
